advertising on site

Dear Chowhounds Mods
I know you are finicky about postings- no tourist itinerary advice, recipes with recipes etc

How do justify having the naked babes for the "League of Angels" ad on the site?? If it's a financial choice it's embarrassing.

  1. I think you may not understand the difference between the function of the Chowhound moderators and itself. The mods have nothing to do with the advertising that appears on the pages - that's all the work of

    That said, I agree that both of the heaving-bosom-filled animated ads for "League of Angels" that I've seen have been pretty unappealing, at least to me. Perhaps the Chowhound boards have more young male readers than I might have guessed...

      Thanks, I wondered if it were a separate corporate decision.

    2. I agree it's pretty obnoxious, but probably better to post on the Site Talk Board where it's more likely to get the attention of Chow.

      1. I agree, that's the last thing I expect to see on this site.

        Nothing at all to do with food and just unpleasant. Those ads do not belong on Chowhound!

          1. I haven't seen that ad...sounds like I might want to! However, my understanding is that websites don't necessarily pick the actual ads that show-up, much like your local tv station doesn't know a Hardee's ad with a barely clothed Katherine Webb will air.
